I knew about Steve Nash & Kobe’s skills on the soccer field but didn’t know Iverson had enough to be in demand.  AI has been rejected every country with hot Latin women in the past few weeks but with his bank account getting low and needing to pay the $850k jewelry debt that a judge has ordered he has to pay I would think any offer would look good right now…even if it is in a different sport which would require him to probably practice.

Here’s the official press release from the Rochester Lancers (via EOB):

The Rochester Lancers, of the MISL’s top level of pro indoor soccer, today announced a contract offer to former NBA star, Allen Iverson.

The Rochester Lancers host two remaining regular season home games to conclude their season.  The offer stands at $20,000 per game, with a bonus of $5,000 per goal scored, win bonuses, and merchandise bonuses.  There are over 12 goals scored on average per game.

“Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time,” said Rich Randall, Vice President of the Rochester Lancers.  “With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport.”

If accepted, the Lancers have also offered to host his friends and family through the duration of his stay.  With the per-game pay and bonuses, this offer will come close to the offer (per game) set by Turkish basketball team, Besiktas and ultimately keeping him the United States.
